Even though feminism is considered the most successful social movement of the 20th century, there is no big topic documentary that deals with its status quo. So here it comes: “Feminism WTF”! The achievements of the women’s* movement influence our lives every day. But still, when I say “Feminism” we might not mean the same thing. This film reflects on current debates and analyses the potential of intersectional feminism to profoundly change our future societies.
